BEAR Innovation Cleans Up

More than $15,000–as well as a Dale Carnegie class and the opportunity to work with a faculty mentor in the summer–is awarded during the 2nd annual BEAR Innovation Competition. Twenty student teams pitch entrepreneurial ideas to judges, but the top prize is awarded to four students whose smartphone app, Easy Laundry, will help wash out the stress of doing laundry in college by providing information on the availability of washers and dryers.
